education has to be a big piece of this. it's in another a staffing issue. you can see they're going through the roof so people are running more red lights. so i think the education pie and if you go back to the statistics the failure to veiled it up 10 percent as the cause for the accidents. so it appears to be education has to be a big you piece of this. as the commissioner said the wave and the eye contact is big hence the campaign about texting. it's literally impossible to go through the city during the day and not having people cross the street not on their cell phones. i look at the numbers and see the facilitys are at 8 we're right on track with having the same high number of facilitys. so i know that staff is going to increase the numbers going up but at the same time would the department feel they're making great progress >> no as we get the newer officers out as part avenue their training with promotions officers come up u come in and it all has to happen at the same time. but we're focusing on the primary collisions because of the economy that we're trying to correct the collisi

of the groups that advocate for higher education affordability in terms of college campuses, the foundations that follow this issue. throughly, having been the ring of fire in one of these close races, to me that is an attack message that will fall short. >> on the house republican bill you said because it is a variable rate that rate on student loans will continue to climb until they can theoretically get below that 6.8% that we are currently talking about. in the immediate short term, the rate remained relatively low. we are talking about low rates across the board. you said there may be changes down the way as the economy strengthens and we get out of what has been years. at the same time, if you adopt the house republican now you get the low rates now. does that offer an opportunity to renegotiate this as sure -- issue going forward? is it better to do nothing and let them jump to 6.8%? >> the better thing is to find competing messengers and come up with some stability. it is a good question. it focuses on the difference between the white house plan and the house republican plan in terms

the kind of education they need, incredible things will happen. for them, for their families, for their community, for their country, for all of us. but here's the hard truth. in spite of the fact that educating a girl is one of the highest return investments available in the developing world, there are 66 million girls out of school. so what exactly changes when girls in the developing world get a good education? everything. >> the morning of january 12th, 2010, was bright and beautiful. in a way that wadley could not remember any other morning ever having been before. it was the dry season when wildflowers bloomed and flowers that bloomed on their own without rain fascinated some little girls. it made impossible things seem possible. unachievable things appear doable. and the flowers, the hibiscus, the azaleas, the bougainvilleas, they all looked even brighter when wadley was happy. >> wadley! wadley! wadley! >> that morning, wadley was working to memorize the final speech of toussaint louverture as he was removed from haiti by the french after he tried to win independence

of education. so we're just sort of throwing money into the water. it's not really making any difference. so i think you have that. i think, you know, institutions respond to loans in very particular ways. i mean, i think they're seen as, they're basically seen as grants. i think a banker said this recently, loans are basically grants to institutions that students pay back, and i think that's -- at least for me, that makes a lot of sense, and we don't think about them that way, and there's sort of a big controversy that way with some changes the department of education recently made to its plus loan program, and some institutions are up in arms because they feel like they are sort of entitled to have these loans even though they end up saddling the parents and the students with tons and tons of debt they can't afford. so i think there are a lot of issues, and we need to -- it sort of gets back to a theme that's been emerging over the course of the information which is we need to start seeing institutions as being culpable for some of this and having them on the hook for some of this stuff. >>

of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particul
